CHARLES SUMNER
Charles Sumner signs a check to pay J. F. Benett Esq. $50.00.
Partly Printed Check filled out and signed: "Charles Sumner", 8x2¾. Washington, 1873 February 26. Drawn on The First National Bank, payable to "J. F. Benett Esq. or order" for $50.00. 2-cent U.S. Internal Revenue tax stamp picturing Washington affixed at right, initialed: "C.S." Endorsed on verso: "J. F. Benett". Charles Sumner (1811-1874), one of the leading opponents of slavery in Congress and Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs (1861-1871), served as a Republican in the U.S. Senate representing Massachusetts from 1851 to his death. On May 22, 1856, because of Sumner's scathing attacks on slavery and its defenders, South Carolina Congressman Preston S. Brooks physically attacked Sumner as he was in his seat in the Senate Chamber, inflicting injuries from which he never fully recovered. Sumner did not return to his seat for three and a half years. Soiled and stained. Cancelation tears touch "umner" in Sumner.
